Our customers wanted the convenience of an instore optician and we’re making it happen, with 12 Tesco Lotus opticians and more to come.

We’re looking for people with the right skills and values to join us at our new, state-of-the-art opticians branches, in one of two roles.

You’ll put your qualifications to work, using the latest technologies to carry out eye examinations. You’ll work as part of the opticians team to help our customers find the glasses or contact lenses that are right for them, giving all the expertise and support they need.

  • achieve sales growth by effectively managing costs and people
  • schedule your colleagues’ working hours, including locums
  • take steps to make eye examinations more available and accessible
  • make sure your branch meets regulatory requirements

Our opticians teams will tell you how rewarding it is putting your expertise to work every day, in ways that can make all the difference for our customers.

In both roles you’ll be face-to-face with our customers and working closely with colleagues as part of a team, using the latest equipment.

As an Opticians Manager you’ll have all eyes on you to make sure your team is fired up and focused on our customers.

To help you flourish in these roles we’ve got a well-defined way of working.

As an Optometrist you’ll be qualified, registered and able to respond to a range of tasks:

  • checking that equipment is maintained and documents are completed

As an Opticians Manager you’ll be someone who can:

  • talk to colleagues to share ideas and best practice
  • create team spirit and build relationships beyond the store
  • act on what’s right for colleagues and customers
  • thrive on change and take people with you to deliver it

In both roles you’ll be someone who puts people at the heart of everything you do:

  • being warm and welcoming with colleagues and customers
  • building relationships and taking time to recognise others
  • always looking for better ways of working
  • giving your best, and then exceeding expectations

We want you to always feel at ease in your new working environment. That’s why we’re doing everything we can to help you enjoy the work you do.

  • You’ll join a welcoming team that works on building strong, friendly relationships with customers and local communities.
  • All year round, you’ll receive benefits and rewards, including additional special offers on our products.
